Hi Karl, welcome to the board mate!
Good to hear you are going towards veganism - i hope you'll get all the support and advice you need from this board. Anything at all, just ask. Folks here seem to know their stuff

i know what you mean, though rest assured. After a while you only need to read new products, and thats not very often. I can go weeks without having a look at single ingredient list because i know what i'm buying. If you think about it, normally people do not buy new products all the time, they have their own favourites and get used to certain choices. Sometimes one might get something new, but thats not all the time. To start with it is needed though.
Hey, this online database might help you:www.isitvegan.info
Have you noticed, sainsburys and co-op supermarkets label their stuff suitable for vegans? Its great!
I like to go to the gym, I go about 3 times a week, I have been doing this for nearly 2 years but have'nt noticed much muscle growth , but I still like going because of the afterglow I get from a good workout it just makes me feel better about myself, relieves all my stress.
thats cool. If you change your mind and want to pack on some muscle, lets us know, there's always a reason why it is not happening
Hope you'll enjoy it here!
